Alto Adige, Trentino Alto Adige


Fontanasanta Vigneti Delle Dolomiti Nosiola 2021

This variety – Nosiola – is an ancient, regional specialty of Trentino-Alto Adige in Northern Italy, known for its distinctive hazelnut aromas that occur naturally, not from long-term oak or bottle aging (which can also contribute nuttiness in white wines). In Italian, “nocciola” means hazelnut, a clear etymological link.

After learning about this unique variety, we had to track down a wine made from it. When we discovered that Azienda Agricola Foradori makes a single variety expression, we were sold!!

This wine was made biodynamically, with ancient practices in the winery, including 8 months of skin contact in clay amphorae. The resulting wine is alive, awakening as it breathes, and evolving from sip to sip.

It first opened with notes of lemongrass, lemon verbena, fresh mint and basil, and delicate white pepper. As it evolved, it took on notes of geranium, white blossom, honeydew, grapefruit pith, elderberry, and wet stones. With even more time, I detected some of that hazelnut character, although, admittedly, it could have been the power of suggestion leading me there…

One thing is for certain: it’s delicious, layered, and like nothing we’ve tasted before.

Vorberg Riserva Terlano Pinot Bianco 2015

See 2 previous notes on this excellent wine. Honeysuckle and ripe pear - low acid. Unctuous is the texture. Pinot Bianco appears to be underrated and probably doesn’t get much better than this. If Pinot Bianco (PB) was always like this, everyone would be growing PB. — 2 months ago
